Have a great time getting yourself in shape with this Sunny magnetic elliptical trainer. It is a great way to start a home gym, as it has what you need to exercise several muscle groups as well as a meter so you can monitor your speed and progress....more
perfect for me I am 5'5" 115 lbs. nice and compact size the stride is shorter than most found in health clubs. I see how this might not work so well for larger taller people, but for people my size I highly recommened it. I was looking for an elliptical that wasn't so bulky and this one is perfect for what I need.
How accurate was the sizing? yes

Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? yes
If you are any where near 6' tall stay far away from this thing. It's nothing but a paper weight for me now. The stride is so short it's a joke. If your like 5'6" then it might not be so bad. Others wise just spend a little more money.
How accurate was the sizing? Not very

I had researched many elliptical machines online and based on prior reviews and price I decided to purchase this model. Its not the top of the line of machines but you get your money's worth and a good workout. I break a sweat every time. I only have had this item for a short period of time so I can't speak about the longevity of quality but for what I paid for and shipping was free, it was a great purchase. No regrets. I get a great workout while watching tv. I'm 5'2 so the stride works fine for me. The resistance knob works (make sure you pay attention to the instruction when assembling the resistence chords and it will do the job). No squeaky noise. Fairly quite. Make sure bolts are fasten well and you won't have any issues with squeaking or rattling. I have a busy schedule so it's nice to be able to work in some cardio while I'm at home. Enjoy your purchase.
Did the product fit true to size? Yes, not bulky and easy to move around. Fits perfect in my spare room.
How is the quality of the product? Great quality. I've only had the machine for a week and have used it several times. So far so good.
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? No defects. Fairly easy to assemble. It took me 2 hours without any frustration. Just pay attention to the instructions.
The product arrive on our doorstep and the box was in good shape. After we opened the box, the parts were loose so we were worried, but all parts were there. The instruction manual was not in english. Once we struggled to get the elliptical together (which wasn't that hard) I jumped on.The micro tension knob is worthless. There is no increase in resistance. The stride is short and the foot placements are narrow, which can get uncomfortable. There is no place to put water so have your water sitting nearby. Also, the display is only good for the timer, the other information is worthless, since you cannot enter data. However, if you are on a tight budget and have limited space, it will do the job. Depending on my time, I work out anywhere between 30 - 50 minutes, 5 days a week, and I get a good workout. If this elliptical falls apart in a year, then I can say that I got my monies worth. All in All, it's OK, but if you have the money, get something with more quality.
Got the product as a "gift" for myself as I didn't want to spend a lot for the other top of the line ellipticals nor did I want to give up over 6 feet of space in my bedroom. My husband and I put it together in about an hour. We took our time and read through the instructions first and figured out the parts and the corresponding nuts bolts and washers. Everything is labeled either on the separate boxes each part came in or on the parts themselves. Afterwards I tried it out . The functions are pretty simple and will turn themselves on when you move the handles (timer, calorie count used, etc). It does have a shorter stride but I am 5' 4" and it is just right for me. Now if I would use it more often......
How accurate was the sizing? Accurate
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very good
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes so far
It was crazy hard to put together. I'm good at building furniture and stuff, and this was very tough. The magnetic tightener thing was close to impossible. It still seem loose actually. It is kind of creaky when you ride it. I am 5'7" and it really gives very little resistance, and the stride is a bit short for my height. It's okay, for a hundred dollars you really aren't going to get much better. I don't see it lasting for that long though. It's not a super high quality machine, but what can you do.
How accurate was the sizing? ok
Please tell us about the quality of the product. not the best, but you get what you pay for

No, this is a very quiet machine. Even when working out, you should not hear a lot of noise. overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 18, 2012
Do the 'arms' move back and forth for arm strengthening? If not, why are there two 'handles'?? Also, some of these reviews are the same ones from another 'stepper' without handles - why is that?consecrata on May 30, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The handlebars move to help exercisers tone the whole body with minimal impact on joints.
